It's that time of year again...

Fresh dug new potatos. I just love them.

Lightly scrubbed (not peeled), patted dry, popped into a bowl with a chunk of marge (or butter) on top, cover with cling film and nuke for 12 minutes in the microwave.

Crush the potatoes (not mash) mix in with the melted butter. Add a bunch of washed and roughly chopped fresh mint leaves, salt and pepper. Serve with whatever you serve with potatoes.

Simple and delicious

I love new potatoes. When I can get them. They have stopped calling them "new potatoes" but when small potatoes were first marketed at my grocery store they were called that. In the middle of winter!

Cornbread Italian-style...with olive oil, rice starch. Gluten-free



I've never made cornbread with olive oil, but I'd try it sometime. My favorite way to bake it is in a cast-iron pan, it gives the best crust. That cornbread is a bit more compact than I'm used to, maybe because of the rice flour. But it looks nice!

Current favorite way to have avocado toast: drizzle it with sriracha mayo. Yum...

I don't care for goat's cheese, but otherwise it sounds lovely. What would be the best replacement, I wonder? Maybe fresh mozzarella?

Labneh,
Or brie and parmesan
Would probably be good substitutes

Did you ever eat polenta? I really like it:), but my Sicilian wife doesn't. :(

It's more popular in northern Italy, btw.

It's normal.
Not so many Sicilians are into polenta or other cornmeal dishes like cornbread.
;)
Northerners for example are not into semolina bread...which is what Sicilians and Neapolitans adore.

Ya, we buy semolina quite often, such as last week.

How about couscous?

What broth do you use to water it?
Just water as we usually have it with a sauce of some sort. As you're probably aware of, couscous is very popular in and near the area of Trapani, and at San Vito lo Capo they celebrate and have a festival for it.

BTW, we're having it for dinner today with tilapia in a tomato sauce with zucchini, onions, etc.

I've never dined in the same water as a fish, let alone tomato sauce.

Do tilapia like zucchini and onions? I just know they eat plants and small animals. I had no idea they ate veggies and couscous.

I bet they would if you chop them to a size they can easily chew. The onion and zucchini might be a little tough, though. Maybe mince, or cook first?
